Highlighted New IOTA Website Features and Resources

Jun 25, 2024 | Call to Action, IOTA

With the multitude of incredible updates our Idaho Occupational Therapy Association website has gone through in the past year, you may not have noticed some of the newer features and resources that have been made available in even just the past two months. We wanted to take this opportunity to specifically highlight these areas, to make our website that much more user friendly to both non-members and members alike.

A great place to start is by accessing the recording of the IOTA Website Webinar that the Association hosted in honor of OT Month April 2024. You can go to the ‘’About’’ drop down menu at the top of the main webpage, and you will see ‘’IOTA Website Webinar.’’ Click there to watch the recording and get a behind the scenes look at all of the features that the website has to offer, especially if you are a member.

We have also recently added a new linked website under the ‘’OT Resources’’ tab on the main web page, under the ‘’Associations & Education Programs’’ drop down tab, O.T. Leaders & Legacies Society. Click there, and go to their website, as they are an amazing resource of OT professionals who are ready and waiting to connect with you for additional support both for mentorship and the history of our profession.

Another new feature that is available to both members and non-members alike is the ‘’OTP Spotlight’’, where you can submit a nomination for a deserving occupational therapy practitioner to be featured. We recently had our first OTP spotlighted and received overwhelming positive feedback, so please submit on behalf of a colleague today and we will feature them on the main website page, through newsletter/email blast, and on our social media, after notifying them that they have been selected.

For our current members, we encourage you to utilize some spectacular features available to you. We now have the ‘’Submit An Event’’ button that you can access when logged in to your member profile on the website, found under the drop down menu ‘’My IOTA’’ and then ‘’My Profile’’, scrolling down under the ‘’Current Continuing Education Opportunities and Discounts’’ section and to the left. For submitting an event to our IOTA calendar, we do have specific requirements and we review each submission, so after selecting that button, please scroll down to read the requirements carefully before submitting.

We must also share how excited we are to now be an OT Potential Association Affiliate, as this platform affords members the unique opportunity to set up a FREE directly profile for yourself as a practitioner, in addition to discounted access to a wide variety of continuing education opportunities. Your purchase of the ‘’OT Potential Club’’ membership directly supports the IOTA, as a portion comes back to us to support your practice in the state of Idaho.

We as an Association plan to continue to add new features and resources in response to your needs as Idaho OT practitioners, so please let us know what you think of these newest features and what else you would like to see added to our website.
